NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertyIdentity

Gets or sets the identity of the user that raised the event.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyInstanceId

System_CAPS_noteNote

This material discusses types and namespaces that are obsolete. For more information, see Deprecated Types in Windows Workflow Foundation 4.5.

A local communication interface marked with ExternalDataExchangeAttribute must declare a type that derives from ExternalDataEventArgs in the interface definition for the corresponding event to be handled in a workflow with a HandleExternalEventActivity activity.

An event class that inherits from ExternalDataEventArgs must implement a constructor that uses the :base(instanceId) constructor. In addition, the new event class must be marked as Serializable as shown in the following code.

[Serializable]
public class TaskEventArgs : ExternalDataEventArgs
{
    private string orderName;

    public TaskEventArgs(Guid instanceId, string id)
        :base(instanceId)
    {
        orderName = id;
    }

    public string Id
    {
        get { return orderName; }
        set { orderName = value; }
    }
}
